    No More Food Stamps for Children of Illegal Immigrants and Low-Income Households in Kansas

    On a whim, I decided to interrupt my football game and take a look at the KC Star, and I really wish I hadn’t. I saw this atrocious gem:

    At a time when Gov. Sam Brownback has vowed to reduce child poverty, the Kansas Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services — a state agency the governor controls — made a policy change that eliminated food stamps for hundreds of low-income U.S. children whose parents are illegal immigrants. For more households, benefits were reduced.

    This is why you so-called ‘Pro-Life’ people do not deserve to call yourselves pro-life. 

    Do you really think it’s cool for Republicans to give handouts to their golf buddies and literally take food out of the mouths of kids?

    I don’t care if someone’s parents jumped the border.  That is their crime.  Their children have committed no crime, and deserve the full benefits that US citizen should receive, including food stamps.  Their parents’ crimes do not give the state a license to starve them into relocating. What’s even worse is Brownback didn’t stop there, though, he’s unilaterally reducing benefits for all low-income households.

    The moral of the story is… if they call themselves ‘pro-life’, Christian, and ‘fiscal conservative’ in Kansas, they are fucking lying to you.
